Materials in Motion Catch Up Meeting

Welcome to Materials in Motion 2021.

With lockdowns continuing throughout the world we still believe it is important for our global community to regularly catch up and share news, information and practices in our field. With this in mind Cosgrove Hall Films Archive, Creative Industries Trafford, EYE Filmmuseum, Manchester Animation Festival and Musées d’Annecy have organised an online catch up for the animation archive community to meet up.  The meeting will take place on the 6 July from 16:30 BST until 20:30. Attendance is free.

The session will include ‘micro talk’ presentations from key organisations followed by a world café where we will split up into breakout rooms to discuss pressing issues. Ahead of the meeting you are encouraged to include topics of conversation you would like addressing in these breakout rooms which you can include when you register your place.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting and a schedule. You are encouraged to share this link with colleagues who operate in archives and who might wish to either learn more about animation materials or who would like to contribute to the conversation. Though registration is free we kindly ask you to not make this link available on social media to allow members of the archiving community to secure their places first.

We look forward to seeing you all again,
